For whatever reason we thought giving former Oakland Raiders and Seattle Seahawks defensive end Jay Richardson his own show was a good idea.
Actually, we know it was a good idea.
The JRich Report with Jay Richardson and Chuck Carroll (yes, co-hosted by myself in interest of full disclosure) debuts Tuesday on the EYES Radio Network and FootballNewsNow.com.
Richardson’s former teammate Mike Mitchell joined us for the debut and took the opportunity to wish Oakland Raiders owner Al Davis a happy birthday. More than just the well wishes, Mitchell took the opportunity to inform the owner he’s been staying busy and keeping in shape.
“Oh Al, happy birthday! Thank you for drafting me. I am forever grateful,” Mitchell gushed on the show. “I am working hard, can’t wait to see you. Hope you still got your white linens on man, because we’re going to go all the way to the championship.”
Not wanting to pass up the opportunity to rib his friend, Richardson fired back.
“Yeah, you can’t wait to see him, give him a back rub and polish the rims on his golf cart,” Richardson jokingly rebutted.
